This Sausage Shrimp and Chicken Gumbo will fulfill all of your comfort food requirements. Full of flavor it’s perfect for Mardi Gras or any time of year!
Married for almost 30 years and I found out during our recent trip to New Orleans that Vince loves gumbo! I had made gumbo once for our Mardi Gras themed Gr8 Dinner, but at the time I wasn’t thrilled with it. (Maybe it was operator error!)
After discovering that gumbo is one of his favorite dishes, I had to figure out how to make it.
Gumbo is a delicious “stew” which can be solely seafood, or can contain several types of sausage, and chicken, too. Every family has their own version. Some like it thick, some like it thinner and soupier. If you’re interested in the history of gumbo and its many variations, here is a good article from Southern Foodways Alliance.
Often when we think of gumbo, we think of New Orleans and Mardi Gras; but this is a flavorful dish that will be devoured and appreciated by your family and friends any time of year.

When I first tested this recipe, I did it on the stove. Then my sweet daughter gave me an Instant Pot for Christmas. If you don’t have an Instant Pot, the stove top directions are below as well. The times are for the Instant Pot version.
And don’t forget some Louisiana hot sauce! Tabasco® brand has been around for 150 years!
Don’t have an Instant Pot yet? I didn’t think I’d like it, but I LOVE it!
